01-24-2013, 02:35 PM #142I believe piracy is banned because of ethical reason not so much law.
I was just responding to you announcing that "jail breaking can never be made illegal".
These are your words my friend not mine haha.
Was just busting your balls though.
There's no way they could take our rights away either (Patriot Act).
They could never violate the 2nd amendment (Assault Weapons Ban of 2013).
Innocent people never get put in jail (list too long).
If you don't think they could nail you on a copyright violation, especially to make a point
Man you are living in a fantasy land
But time will tell. AND they WILL try to 'make some examples' early on. We'll see what happens.

I guess people that jaywalk and speed are as bad is pirates
And people that pirate are as bad as people that kill people.
They are all against the law right? Lol.
Simply put. This site supports jail breaking. It doesn't support piracy.

Gotta love a country where jaywalkers get hit by cars and sue and win. Pedestrians have the right of way 0.o

It would still be pretty hard for the owners of the forum to make a distinction, even a 'moral' one between stealing the artwork/intellectual property of another person and releasing for free (as is the case with pirating) and stealing the code of another and releasing it for free and even sometimes for DONATIONS (as is the case with jailbreaking). Ethically and morally they're pretty much the same thing if you really look at it. The ONLY difference being one of 'scale' - one steals from a GIANT CORPORATION like Apple and the other steals from the 'little guy' (the tweak maker). The whole thing gets a little too gray for my likes.
In the end neither are enforceable laws (jailbreaking or pirating). Most forums have chosen to consider hacking okay and pirating not. I tend to agree with that stance. But the argument to make a distinction isn't easy on ethical OR moral grounds.

Now why is that? Well it probably comes down to the one who makes the rules morals.
Atleast this is how I understood it
Anyway thanks for the discussion. Got me looking up things and learning. Haha

@NewDestiny I must say that ethics and the law are not inseparably intertwined. If you have taken a business ethics class you would know that ethics and the law are separable, though sometimes these two do align. For example, Googles mapping vehicle is doing nothing illegal but some have questioned the ethics of capturing the faces of individuals for the whole world to see. Is this ethical, who's to say but it is not illegal. So linking the two is a bit naive in my opinion. Apple and Foxconn would be another example. Just sayin.

Heres my simple answer:
Piracy is theft. People do lose revenue.
Jailbreaking itself is a victimless crime.
